Montrose Trio in concert with Richie Hawley
Three world-renowned musicians join forces in the new ensemble Montrose Trio, making its highly-anticipated Houston debut. A veteran of the international concert stage, Houston-based pianist Jon Kimura Parker joins forces with violinist Martin Beaver and cellist Clive Greensmith of the now-disbanded Tokyo String Quartet, a long-time favorite of Houston chamber music audiences.
The Trio performs Beethoven’s Trio in E-flat Major, Op. 1, No. 1 and Tchaikovsky’s Trio in A Minor, Op. 51. Clarinetist Richie Hawley joins the Trio for the Houston premiere of a new work by acclaimed Houston-based composer Pierre Jalbert, Street Antiphons, co-commissioned by Da Camera. Professor of Piano at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, Jon Kimura Parker has performed as guest soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Wolfgang Sawallisch in Carnegie Hall, toured Europe with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Andre Previn, and shared the stage with Jessye Norman at Berlin’s Philharmonie.
